thank you Red Hat for the fulfilled song request  8)
for anyone else that would like to listen to his awesome show and is having some trouble with their own receivers, i have mapped out four Kiwi SDR's that are receiving Red Hat at a good, stable signal, they are:
"AJ7LL", Huson, Montana (best)
"WC8VOA", WestChester, Ohio.
"KA7U", Weiser, Idaho
"Radio Ranch", Pahrump, Nevada
"WA3ETD", Central Vermont
"shift+P" increases bandwidth, "p" decreases bandwidth.

being a big fan of Lee Dorsey and being very familiar with his music, the cover of hit song "working in a coal mine" by Devo was absolutely hysterical but i wouldnt expect anything less from Devo   ;D ;D
now that was funny haha  ;D ;D

X-FM, 4085AM, 12-16-18, SIO 353

About S5 with deep fades at 0418z tune in. Great sounding audio from RH with an ID then into a cool mash-up of Zepplin and Sabbath. Works for me.
Great to hear you! Thanks for the shout  8)

Some nice S7 peaks near the end of the show.

Thank you all for your reports and posts.  I have started a thread in the general section about the suitability of this frequency in the future and I'm interested in seeing if anyone noted any interference or other band users that I haven't seen.

Thanks all,
